TOTP BOOKERS GO HOME EARLY

We're not sure if its a good sign or a bad sign that the TOTP producers are allowing Green Day to get away with a nine minute performance of Jesus of Suburbia this coming Sunday - "the longest in the show's history", it says here. It's encouraging that the programme wants to give proper space to a performance - even a Green Day one - although we bet they'll find the need to scroll gunk all over the screen while its on; on the other hand, we can't help picturing the scene in the production office:

"Green Day want to do nine minutes..."
"Who else have we got booked for the show?"
"Erm... Hilary Duff is still a possible..."
"Ask them if they could add a middle eight and another chorus and stretch to fifteen."

It's not without precedent for a punk (well, ish) band to release a concept album with an 8 minute track. Husker Du did more or less the same thing on Zen Arcade. Therefore, American Idiot = Zen Arcade. Oooh, hang on, that doesn't sound right.... Er, forget I said anything.
